PROMISE ME by Liltrain - [Alt]
A very emotional uber tale about two of our most painful social ills, child abuse and domestic violence, Liltrain's latest is set in the present day where two soulmates find their love challenged by a brutal cycle of violence. Having survived a childhood filled with pain, betrayals and fear, Jamie Myers is shattered when the one person who's helped her forget those memories suddenly brings them back in a moment of thoughtless anger. Unaware of Jamie's past history with abuse but having seen her share of violence growing up, Kris Grier is horrified when she finds herself suddenly revisiting that violence. In the days ahead the two will recall the wonder of their first meeting, the excitement and nervousness of their courtship, the bliss of their developing relationship and the agony of those childhood years as they work their way back to one another and try to break the cycle of violence now threatening the most precious love each has ever known. Liltrain serves us here with a very poignant story that vividly portrays the lifelong effects of exposing children to abuse and violence. The leads are developed through a series of flashbacks into two very human characters who recognize the obstacles placed in their path by hellish childhoods and yet find the strength to deal with these head on. The story is well-written, effective in its approach and ultimately reaffirming. DO NOT MISS! - 16 pgs., 9/4/00
